Flatpicker Michael Daves, who plays with the likes of Chris Thile, Steve Martin, and Tony Trischka, grew up playing bluegrass in that grand old tradition of staying up late and singing real loud. Now heralded as “a leading light of the New York bluegrass scene” (The New York Times), Daves is here with friends in tow, including Yonder Mountain String Band’s Jacob Jolliff.

Did you know that North Adams was once home to the second largest Chinese population east of the Mississippi? The Celestials transports us to 1870 as seventy-five Chinese laborers — and unwitting strikebreakers — arrive in this bustling factory town. A tale of labor, love, immigration, and community, Peter Glazer’s stage adaptation of Williamstown author Karen Shepard’s mesmerizing novel (inspired by the same history as MASS MoCA’s 2008 exhibition The Nanjing Particles, by Simon Starling), The Celestials shines a light…

$42.50 – $75

With its self-titled, platinum-selling 1983 debut album, the Violent Femmes instantly became one of the most inventive and surprising bands of the era, brandishing a singular blend of folk and punk, sarcasm and spirituality, which made brilliant stories of anguish, shame and lust into hilariously dark tragicomedies on songs like “Blister in the Sun,” “Kiss Off,” and “Add It Up.” Seven albums later, in 2000, they took a long break — only to return with a vengeance with 2016’s We…
